Webinar Series on the Future of Anthropology: Indigenous Peoples, Heritage and Landscape in the Asia Pacific: Knowledge Co-Production, Policy Change, and Empowerment
Ecological degradation from resource extraction has the strongest impact on Indigenous communities and othhers who live right alongside the resources, and thus the extraction. Even when communities are not fully displaced from the land, they can still lose access through restrictive enclosures and also from the physical removal of forest and the destruction of waterways. This panel will discuss community-led initiatives and collaborative research projects that attempt to foreground the ideas and concerns of Indigenous groups living within project areas, with respect for their knowledge of the landscape, the situation, as well as possible solutions. Drawing examples from Cambodia, Indonesia, and Guam, panelists focus on both the policy implications of their work and the impacts of their activities on local communities.
Panelists: Courtney Work (National Cheng-chi University, Taiwan); Micah Fisher (University of Hawaii-Manoa), Else Demeulenaere (University of Guam)
Moderator: Guy Charlton (University of New England, Australia)
